Congratulations!!!  I felt the same way in my first trimester, and couldn’t wait until the second to start telling people.  The first trimester seemed to drag sooooo long!

Congratulations!! We are TTC and I know it’s going to kill me not to say anything! Plus it’s going to be hard to change some habits without people noticing. I drink coffee every morning at work and want to hide it from coworkers for a while. Luckily I bring my own in a travel mug so I might just fill it with OJ instead haha. And I never turn down a glass of wine… FI’s family will know right away if I do.

Good luck waiting! Hard to keep good news quiet.

CONGRATS!!!! We are TTC right now and have discussed not telling ANYONE until 12 weeks. That is our goal… we will have to see how we do! (PS the bee is the #1 exclusion to that rule! lol)

Congratulations! It’s SO hard not to tell anyone. I’m 11 weeks today and I swear the closer we get to that twelve week mark, the slower time goes! We’ve told our families and some close friends, but it’s like slow torture! Truth be told though, I also enjoyed having this little secret between DH and myself, so try to focus on that. Try starting a baby journal too. I try writing every few days and it’s been really great for getting my thoughts and emotions out and I’m looking forward to one day giving it to my child!

YES. 

We’ve told parents, BFF & siblings. (They live away from us.)

And I HAD to tell folks at work (they knew we were going through IVF) so my fix is done. I just can’t wait for it to not be a secret anymore.  7 weeks to go!

Since we live overseas and I knew I was going home for a couple weeks (planned the trip before I got pregnant) I ended up telling people before I hit the 2nd trimester. I had an ultrasound with the heartbeat the day before I left, so my husband and I felt it would be okay to share the news. Since we don’t see family and friends in person that often, it was wonderful to tell them all! I ended up putting it on FB around 10 weeks (just 2 weeks ago).

As for Pinterest, I finally pinned a whole bunch of stuff I’ve been bookmarking old-school style for the past three months! All of the baby boards are near the top: http://pinterest.com/jesstagirl/

Congrats, mama!!  DH and I are trying not to tell everyone outside of close friends and family until the second trimester starts, but it’s been so hard as of lately because I have been SO SICK.  Everyone keeps looking at me like, what’s wrong with you…?  And I just keep trying to pass it off as oh I just don’t feel well haha…but my coworkers basically know that I’ve been nearly puking every day for two weeks, so I think they might know the jig is up…Smile  Hopefully you don’t have the same trouble!
